St. Anthony Chronic Care Center Earns ADA Recognition

The St. Anthony Chronic Care Center, Diabetes Services Self-Management Education Program has received ongoing recognition from the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The ADA’s Education Recognition Program (ERP) assures that educational services meet the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (DSMES).

The ERP, which is a voluntary recognition, promotes quality DSMES for people with diabetes. Programs that adhere to National Standards ensure knowledgeable health professionals provide participants with comprehensive information about diabetes management. Self-management is an essential component of a plan of care for someone living with diabetes. Participants in DSMES are taught self-care skills that promote better management of their diabetes regimen which include topics of nutrition, diabetes disease process, physical activity, monitoring/preventing/detecting acute complications, reducing risk for chronic complications, psychological adjustment and goal setting/problem solving.
